5 Influences That Effect Teen At-Risk Behaviors

Parents, πŸ‘‹ Did you know that despite all of the internal and external influences that influence risky behaviors in our teenagers, we as parents are still ranked number one. πŸ₯³
Though we are number 1️⃣, we need to be aware of the other influences as well, so we can properly prepare and support our young people.
Those other influences include:
πŸ’Ž Hormones
πŸ’Ž Media Messages
πŸ’Ž Peer Pressure
πŸ’Ž Relationship Pressure
Though these influences can affect our teens negatively, they can also affect them positively. Within the right peer group or relationship, positive peer pressure can occur. Influencing things like grades, exposure opportunities, and other positive social engagement.
Though popular culture in the media presents unhealthy risk taking as the β€œnorm,” there are other media outlets and platforms (i.e. podcast, influencers, etc.) that are counter culture.
Parents, what are your on thoughts on the topic of influence on your young people? πŸ€”
